Iberico pork comes from black breed pig from wild swine that have grown up foraging for acorns amongst the undergrowth in the picture-perfect forests of southern Europe.
The meat is more flavorful and juicy, and very distinctive. The predominantly acorn diet of the pigs give a very particular flavor to the pork which is unique and nutty.
On top of being high in fat, a large amount of it is unsaturated oleic fat to reduce cholesterol, and is an important part of the Mediterranean diet. When you eat Iberico pork, the marbling of fat in it makes it super tasty and delicious.
